GT: Kings (17-29) @ Celtics (21-23) 30/1/2013
 
The Kings and the Celtics play for the last time this season with the Kings holding a 1-0 lead in the series. The Kings were able to beat Boston in Sacramento where the team as a whole played there best game while Rondo (struggled with injury) and Pierce were largely ineffective. The Celtics this time won't have Rondo but will have Avery Bradley back and will most likely come out looking for blood after a marathon win over NBA champs Miami.

Starting line ups most likely


vs



Notes/Thoughts
  • Would love to see Bradley take Evans on defense and in return would love to see Evans take Pierce on defense
  • Will be interesting to see how the bigs will match up will KG defend Cuz or Thompson and who will take KG down the other end?
  • How will Pierce go playing most likely point forward and will Jeff Green maybe even start and have a more extended role
  • The Kings are 10-1 vs sub 500. teams in the East, Celtics are 3-2 vs sub 500. teams from the West (all teams which are now sub 500. not at the time they played)
  • Which DeMarcus Cousins will show up? Will the Celtics shooters Lee, Terry, Leandro and Pierce finally start to heat up against a team known for giving wide open shots non stop?
  • Since KG came to Boston the Celtics have never lost to the Kings in Boston

I think Boston wins this. Cousins gets in foul trouble and never gets a groove going.

Its a all to sad but true occurance, that or after playing well in the first quarter something will piss him off to the point where he will refuse to play if only he could just play.

I think this will determine if the C's blow it up or not. Let's go Kings!!! Not sure if Salmons will play (Flu) not that it matters. Odds that Coach Smart has a rotation that anyone can figure out? 1000 to 1.

Celts aren't blowing it up at least until the offseason.

Yep. Especially now that the Rudy Gay for Pierce rumors are finally over...

I don't know what Tommy's talking about with "young legs who will get out and run" with this offense. Shit, we weren't even running WITH Rondo. If anything, the key to success will be quite the opposite. If you can get a rebound, then fine...get out in transition (like Lee just did). But success in the halfcourt is going to be everything, especially come playoffs when the game slows down tremendously.

Strong, aggressive pressure on the ball...keep opposing guards from getting their teams into their offense. No more of this gambling shit on defense.

Cousins getting abused and taking amazingly dumb shots, KG fader is insane.

Jeeeesus, KG's jumper is wet right now. Nothing Cousins could do about that.

Wait...

So Paul's was a travel...but that one Evans just did wasn't.

Violet Palmer and Bennett Salvatore. That explains things.
